COVID-19: Discover Poronui's COVID-19 policies and procedures
SCI Convention, Reno 2020
– About

For some of the best New Zealand Red Stag hunting, visit the team from Poronui Hunting at booth 3136.

Wednesday 5th to Saturday 8th February, 2020

Based on the North Island, Poronui is home to all the North Island deer species – Red Stags, Rusa, Fallow and Sika. Stalk through Poronui’s native beech forest and across scrub-covered hills, wade streams and crawl around fallen logs to get into the perfect position to take your shot at a bucket-list animal. The terrain is challenging but achievable and the hunt is always exciting.

Steve is at the show and is ready to answer all your questions and help plan your next hunt.

If the very biggest red stags are on your list, come and view photos that have our head guide so excited.  Described by him as the best he’s seen in the 12 years he’s been at Poronui, several are expected to top SCI700.

The 2020 rut is imminent (expected to start early/mid-March) and it’s an exciting time of year. The Red roar is spine tingling and it’s also a great time to combine hunting with fishing for rainbow and brown trout in the remote mountain streams and rivers surrounding our property.

Past clients will be dropping by the booth and we welcome you to come and share hunting experiences with us.
